He shows me a mock phishing email, urging a user to download a security update.
When the user clicks on the download link, they are asked by the device whether they want to install. If they click yes, as many would do if the email appeared to legitimately come from their employer, the malware downloads on to the iPhone.
New iOS Wi-Fi hack drops malware on your iPhone to steal sensitive data - TechRepublic
In the example Shaulov uses, a fake enterprise email client is downloaded. He uses that fake app to collect information such as calendar, geolocation and contact data, or even switch on recording without any user intervention. People are familiar with this way that IT delivers a new application, so they just click that malicious link.
There are precedents. Researchers from the Georgia Tech Information Security Center have previously shown off a way of sneaking a bad app into the store. They sent in what appeared to be a legitimate piece of software and Apple accepted it. But once the app was installed on a user device it would rearrange its code to enable more malicious features, such as stealing photos and sending emails. Others have created nifty pieces of iOS malware. Neal Hindocha, a researcher from security company Trustwave, is planning to demonstrate a keylogger at RSA Conference that can monitor everything on an iPhone, right down to the swipes of a touchscreen.
Escaping Sandbox Using Callbacks on iOS 11.4
It will only work on a jailbroken device, however, where security protections stopping applications having too much power are removed. Another potentially nasty attack vector can come from website attacks that launch a kernel-level exploit, cutting right to the heart of iOS and handing user privileges to a hacker. This is one of the most difficult ways to break iOS, especially when the attacker is doing the work remotely rather than having direct access to the device.
Apple has covered off all known kernel vulnerabilities in the latest version of iOS, but researchers have theorised on possible future attacks.

Tarjei Mandt, senior vulnerability researcher at Azimuth Security, has been probing the ways iOS allocates memory and believes he has found a potential weakness. A hypothetical attack would see the hacker trick this metadata structure, information from which is taken by the code doing the memory allocation, into writing remote code into the memory pages of the device. The attacker could direct a target to a website, where a browser vulnerability would be exploited to initiate attack code.
